Peter was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1984. He is self-taught in analog photography and its various processes. He has taught workshops such as the technique of light painting on polaroids at the Ottawa Art Gallery, and has also taught ESL

My photographic practice is concerned with the ambiguity contained within natural and artificial environments. Throughout my practice I have been interested in the psychological quality contained by interior spaces and outdoor locations. In my work I blur the lines between staged situations and actual scenarios in order to pursue the idea of the unexplained within the existing method of image-making. In my practice I present an otherworldly condition and strive to suspend the belief of the viewers.
